Luckily (?) it only had breakdown stuff like tools, tubes, compressor, first aid kit etc in it and the bag itself was a little worn, but dammit now I gotta replace it and its not like that stuff would be of any use unless that person rides, which if it was a fellow rider-

Crackheads/Methheads/Kidiots will steal anything and try to sell it. It doesn't necessarily have to be a rider that's doing it. That said, fellow riders steal BIKES all the time.
Anyway word of warning fellow riders: The bastards are out there, don't leave anything on your bike!
Or secure it better if you don't want to take it with you. Lock it to the bike with a PacSafe net, and put an alarm on the bike. Then they're usually more likely to go somewhere else and find easier pickings.
